As a former UNH Board member, Mr. Edelstein was instrumental in assuring that UNH achieved stability and effectiveness in the 1980s. Through this award, UNH recognizes staff of UNH member agencies who have demonstrated significant commitment to and accomplishment in the area of civic advocacy and engagement. One thousand dollars ($1,000) is awarded each year.
